We are a nonprofit 501(3) group of volunteers dedicated to making our library system and its programs the best they can be.  Anyone who enjoys the pleasure of a good book or the myriad of benefits and services of the library should be a friend.  Our non-profit tax ID is 23-7098721.

The Friends work with library staff to sponsor:

  • Entertainment, education, and connection for local communities through book clubs, lectures, storytimes, movie nights, and crafting classes.

  • Internet and technology access, computer literacy skills, and support for individuals, businesses, job seekers, and entrepreneurs.

  • Conversation clubs in Spanish and English for adults learners and bilingual storytimes for children.

  • Give away books for children to keep and cherish.  Last year over 1500 new books were given to children in partnership with First 5 Marin.

  • On the Wall Art lending programs.

  • The Shop at South Novato, with hands-on learning and activities for all ages.

Our annual Great Mystery Sale is on now! All large-format hardcovers and paperbacks are half price, just $1.00 each!*  So many beautiful prime condition books, and lots of series that are quite popular. Sale runs through July. *Note: excludes Current Releases


Also, July is our nation’s birthday, and we celebrate with 1/2 off History. 


If you’re attending Novato’s 4th of July parade, stop in! We are ALWAYS open during parade hours (roughly 9:30-1:00), so slip inside, cool off,  and see what we’ve got.
